» Don’t Shoot the Puppy!

It is not at all obvious how you play this, but trust me: you can make it to 15 levels on this game. “Hint: It’s the exact opposite of what you do in all other games.”

“Dedicated to the misuse of Chinese characters in western culture.”
Lists several (mostly tattooed) misuses of Chinese and Japanese characters. Brilliant! Make sure that “Warrior” on your bicep doesn’t actually mean “Donut Hole”.

» The Torn-Up Credit Card Application

“You should probably buy a shredder today.” Indeed!
[Note: This took place in the US, using a US bank.]

» World Class Juggling: Chris Bliss

[Apologies to Metafilter readers]
Yikes. This one has been making the rounds. It’s a little… cheeseball maybe. The guy is definitely good. It’s hard to take the term “World Class” seriously but it’s pretty mesmerizing to watch Mr. Bliss in action. Note: The audio is worth it on this one.

Happy Friday! 🙂
